Who is Buried in Grant’s Tomb?

A certain cohort of readers may remember Groucho Marx’s famous game show You Bet Your Life, in which he asked contestants, “Who is Buried in Grant’s Tomb?”

To find out for yourself you can visit Grant’s Tomb, a national memorial which is located in Riverside Park in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan.

While it may seem obvious that the tomb is named for the famous General and 18th President of the United States of America, Ulysses S. Grant, it is less obvious that Grant is also accompanied by his wife, Julia.
The true trivia buffs though will know that the real answer to the riddle is that no one is actually buried in the tomb. Mr. and Mrs. Grant are, in fact, entombed!!
